#reintroductions Hi new scholars!
Can't believe I haven't done one for ages, so here goes:
⚕️medical student who is really enjoying it at the moment
🚑 uni-wise, interested in pre-hospital/emergency medicine
🔬 casually interested in #mitochondria and social determinants of health and 🎮 narrative-based games

Between white people appropriating like crazy, and CA wildfires killing the plants and their entire ecosystems, it's time this plant ceased being everyone's go-to for magickal work.
"... Due to the illegal over-harvesting of Saliva apiana in recent years in combination with increased, devastating wild fires on White Sage lands in Southern California, concern for the commercialized harvesting and distribution of White Sage grows as the wild populations of this species shrink in size.
Many Native American communities are requesting at this time that non-native peoples stop harvesting this plant from the wild altogether. As Native Americans have been the caretakers of this plant and the lands it grows on for countless generations, it is important that everyone respect and honor their request."
your regular reminder that censoring words l*ke th*s is actively counterproductive because it bypasses the filters that people set up for themselves
to take an innocuous example, if i use filters to block the word "orange", and you write "or*nge", you have now ensured that i will see a post that i have explicitly tried to get out of my timeline
Aid request for a low income disabled trans person in need! My partner was houseless for a long time prior to moving in with me & lost their clothing & has not been able to get new clothes including any gender affirming clothing in 3+ years. They’re also in need of prescription eyeglasses & have been w/o for 4yrs. I’m trying to raise funds to take them thrifting & to the optometrist for Christmas. Anything is helpful!
UK politics, academics
I might have missed this, being on sabbatical and all, but apparently we're supposed to encourage students to exercise their voting rights. And apparently more than a few old Brits dislike this because they don't know their own home country's voting law.
Too bad I don't have any students right now.
